Following is what wacky Wayne LaPierre and his National Rifle Assn. con artists said in an ad
|Lies and more lies|
supposedly depicting the opinions of America’s law enforcement on gun control: “Seventy-one percent of police say that Obama’s gun ban will have zero effect on violent crime. Eighty percent of police say that more background checks will have no effect.” WRONG says the Washington Post Fact Checkers. To begin with, it isn’t even confirmed that all the voters were police officers and the survey got only 2,500 views out of 765,000 local and state law enforcement officers, not including federal officers. The small amount of responses was not even representative and the NRA knew that. The pollsters, San Francisco based Police One, said they had no control over how the NRA used their data and distanced themselves from what the organization said.
The NRA and the gun culture in general are constantly attacking data used by the gun control activists. Here is a clear example of how information has been twisted to fit the needs of wacky Wayne and his gang of gun nuts. This article is a must-read.
